Join me for a special edition of the Author Chat show on Tuesday, August 12th when I interview author/dietitian Karen Donaldson about her new book, Beat the Belly Fat Blues: Mind-Body Solutions for Permanet Weight Loss. This book is getting rave reviews on Amazon and is currently on their best sellers list!
About the book:
If you’ve ever asked yourself the question “I know what I’m supposed to do to lose weight, so WHY can’t I do it?”, you need this book. In the tradition of Deepak Chopra in What Are You Hungry For? and Geneen Roth in Breaking Free From Emotional Eating, Belly Fat Blues explains the complex interaction between carbohydrates, stress, cravings, emotional eating, and brain chemistry in a way that is easy to understand.
As a registered dietitian, Donaldson explains how our comfort foods raise the serotonin and dopamine levels in our brains, making us feel calm and happy. But “self-medicating” with carbs ultimately backfires as it leads directly to belly fat. As a recognized expert on emotional eating, Donaldson’s intuitiveness and compassion shine through as she explains how negative beliefs and traumas stored in your mind prevent you from losing weight and keeping it off. Losing weight is not about what you eat, it’s about what’s eating you.
In this episode, host Robin Masiewicz and regular guests Jamie and Gloria continue their discussion about learning to focus on one thing at a time and doing tasks more consciously. Robin talks about Zen Tasking and eliminating distractions. The group also talks about Zen driving, hypermiling, and the advent of self-driving cars.
Key points from this episode:
Focus on one thing at a time, and give it your full attention
When we try to multi-task, what actually happens is we end up switching back-and-forth between tasks, paying less attention to both.
The more you switch back-and-forth, the more time you waste and the lower your quality of work
Distractions such as cell phone and text messaging are addictive, but you can train yourself not to respond to every ping or poke.
Schedule time for yourself; give yourself some uninterrupted time to work, relax, or reflect

Great tips from the Sarasota Zen Study Group on “How to uni-task in a multitasking world“.
"While on the radio show Tuesday, Glenn and Simon Sinek, author of Start With Why and Leaders Eat Last, discussed how the chemicals in our brain react to certain actions and achievements.
Tonight, we discuss that and how it all comes together to form the world in which we live. Is it political? Yep.
The idea that a person can be addicted to food has recently gotten more support from science.
Experiments in animals and humans show that, for some people, the same reward and pleasure centers of the brain that are triggered by addictive drugs like cocaine and heroin are also activated by food, especially highly palatable foods. Highly palatable foods are foods rich in:
Like addictive drugs, highly palatable foods trigger feel-good brain chemicals such as dopamine. Once people experience pleasure associated with increased dopamine transmission in the brain's reward pathway from eating certain foods, they quickly feel the need to eat again.
The reward signals from highly palatable foods may override other signals of fullness and satisfaction. As a result, people keep eating, even when they're not hungry.
People who show signs of food addiction may also develop a tolerance to food. They eat more and more, only to find that food satisfies them less and less.
Scientists believe that food addiction may play an important role in obesity. But normal-weight people may also struggle with food addiction. Their bodies may simply be genetically programmed to better handle the extra calories they take in. Or they may increase their physical activity to compensate for overeating.

Go ahead and get your blood work done, talk to your nutritionist, get some skin patch testing, take another dose of nasal steroids. Or, hold up... maybe you should step back from the certainty that you have "allergies". I'm a seasoned expert in allergic responses. My Po reacted for years to "environments" that were incongruent with my heart's needs. Emotions are paramount to natural integration with your life. Your body is THE measure of health. When something outside of you is out of sync, then your body in turn is out of sync. Allergies are representative of alignment issues. At the physiological level, the cycle of stress and hormonal depletion is the chronic condition of incongruency. Join this discussion for some simple advice and methods to accessing true presence in the observation of your reactions.
Foods that will provide the essential fuel to spark your sexual appetite and increase libido.
While celery may not be the first food that comes to mind when you're thinking sex, it can be a fantastic source food for sexual stimulation. This is because it contains androsterone, an odorless hormone released through male perspiration and turns women on.
How to enjoy this libido food: Celery is best eaten raw. Wash and cut some, and munch away.
2 - Raw oysters
This is one of the classic aphrodisiacs. Oysters are high in zinc, which raises sperm and testosterone production. Oysters also contain dopamine, a hormone known to increase libido. Also, the experience of shucking a raw oyster is erotic. Try incorporating it into your foreplay — feed her and have her feed you. The slippery taste sensation and the mere act of sucking should get you both in the mood.
How to enjoy this libido food: Scrub the shells thoroughly to get any dirt or bacteria off. Pry them open with an oyster knife and place them on a bed of ice, squeeze some fresh lemon onto them if you like, and then start sucking away.
3 - Bananas
Bananas contain the bromelain enzyme, which is believed to increase libido and reverse impotence in men. Additionally, they are good sources of potassium and B vitamins like riboflavin, which increase the body's overall energy levels.
How to enjoy this libido food: Place them on a dish in various states of "undress" and have your lady slowly eat some for you. Then gobble yours down and get to work.
